Lost in Translation

The following two definitions are taken from "Lost in Translation" by Adam Jacot de Boinod, who searched dictionaires to find words we don't have in English! Full article here...

I love these definitions and they certainly go hand in hand for me. I spend much of my life worrying that time is running out....

Ichigo-ichie (Japan): the practice of treasuring each moment and trying to make it perfect

Torschlusspanik (German): the fear of diminishing opportunities as one gets older (literally: gate-closing panic;) often applied to women worried about being too old to have children
